IT Service Desk (formerly Mines Service Center – MSC)

New Space:

While we improve the physical space to make for a more engaging and efficient  customer service experience, the IT Service Desk has moved around the corner to the old Einstein Bros. Bagels location. We are planning to be back in the new space by May 2024.

Hours of operation remain unchanged.
